Garbage and recycling collectors have been notifying city and county residents of their efforts to keep staff, customers, and families healthy and safe as the situation continues to evolve due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In Sugar Hill, Advance Disposal is limiting the number of green logo bags to three bags of household trash only effective March 23. This three-bag limit only applies to those customers using bagged service. For customers using Advance Disposal’s cart service, collection will be limited to what fits into the cart with the lid closed. All bulk (over-sized items) waste collection as well as leaf and limb pick up is suspended until further notice. Recycling service continues.

Waste Management announced changes effective March 24 including the suspension of services considered non-essential. Their staff will not collect any trash/waste stream outside the cart. Yard waste, including grass clippings, brush and tree limbs, and bulk collection of furniture, mattresses and appliances will not be collected until their work force can return to pre-pandemic levels.

Residents and businesses should check with their local waste collection service for additional details.
